Prestige (premium/high-end) skincare is packed with quality ingredients that help you preserve your youthful glow. Many of these anti-aging products contain Retinoids or Alpha Hydroxy, which have been shown in evidence-based studies to work effectively to slow and/or reverse key signs of aging. These products speed up the renewal and turn-over of skin cells, causing faux tans to fade quickly. 

This process exfoliates your top layer of skin in order to deeply penetrate your facial skin and spur collagen production, thus creating anti-aging effects. Sunless tanning sprays and products only develop on the very top layer of skin. So, when we use products that make those slough off faster….we lose our gorgeous glow. 

Don’t sweat it (pun intended)! We’ve got the answers to all your faux glow dilemmas!! 

PROBLEM: Combining sunless tanner with anti-aging products.

SOLUTION: Switch your sunless tanner to the AM if your evening skincare routine includes your anti-aging lotions and potions. Retinols and sunless tanners counteract with each other, making both work less effectively. 

PROBLEM: Layering your products and serum incorrectly. 

SOLUTION: Switch the order of your products and you will see better results, sometimes this simple change is enough to make a huge difference in the development of your faux-glow.
